Sammanfattning : Background: The birth of stereotactic functional neurosurgery in 1947 was to a great extent dependent on the development of ventriculography. The last decades have witnessed a renaissance of functional stereotactic neurosurgery in the treatment of patients with movement disorders. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Background: Essential tremor (ET) is the most common movement disorder. In cases resistant to pharmacological treatment, functional stereotactic neurosurgery can be an alternative. Lesional surgery has largely been replaced by deep brain stimulation (DBS). The current target of choice is the ventrolateral thalamus (Vim). LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Neurosurgery is the cornerstone in the treatment of a majority of brain tumors. Surgery can sometimes cure or delay tumor progression. However, surgery is associated with risks, and adequate information about the anticipated peri- and postoperative course is important for informed consent. LÄS MER
4. Hormones, biomarkers, genetics and prognostication of patients suffering severe traumatic brain injury
Sammanfattning : Severe traumatic brain injury (sTBI) is a significant cause of mortality and mobidity worldwide. In Umeå University Hospital, at the department of Neurosurgery, patients with sTBI are treated by the Lund concept, which can be characterized as an intracranial pressure (ICP) targeted therapy. LÄS MER
5. On severe traumatic brain injury : aspects of an intra cranial pressure-targeted therapy based on the Lund concept
Sammanfattning : Severe Traumatic Brain Injury (sTBI) is a major cause of mortality and morbidity. At the Department of Neurosurgery Umeå University Hospital subjects with sTBI are treated with an intracranial pressure (ICP) guided therapy based on physiological principles, aiming to optimise the microcirculation of the brain so avoiding secondary brain injuries.
